a comment on the General Rambling ProtonMail now available to the public 1 year and 8 months ago
Hi all,

With my DDG staff hat off, I thought some people might be interested in this news. ProtonMail, which offers an encrypted email service, is now out of private beta and has also released iOS and Android apps:

I should add that this is not an endorsement as I've never used ProtonMail (I'm a happy FastMail user FWIW), but I know many on this forum are interested in privacy-focused services. There are a few other email provider suggestions here as well: https://duck.co/help/features/email

And just for the record... no, DuckDuckGo is not considering an email service!

Thanks for that. I've reported it to the developers.

Actually I should clarify - that's nearly 2,000 people who have forked the DuckDuckGo repositories for Instant Answers.

Thanks for bringing this up. I've forwarded this to the developers who are going to take a closer look.

Thank you! And that's also on behalf of the many contributors (nearly 2,000!) who have helped build DuckDuckGo over the years. We're lucky to have this great community :-)
a reply to a comment on the General Rambling Definitions in the DuckDuckGo api 1 year and 8 months ago
I see what you mean but I'm not exactly sure why. I think it may be something to do with the data sources for the definitions, e.g. whether we're allowed to syndicate the data in an API or not. If that's the case then our API page should be updated to clarify. Anyway, I've raised it as an issue with the developers so we can find out more.

a reply to a comment on the General Rambling duckduckgo.com does not go to start page - WHY? 1 year and 8 months ago
Hi. As others have said, you're being redirected to a minimalist version of DuckDuckGo. For us to investigate, please could you let us know your browser version and operating system? This site will help if you're not sure: http://www.whatsmybrowser.org/
a reply to a comment on the General Rambling What are current API rate limits for searches ? 1 year and 9 months ago
Hi. There's no publicly-announced limit for API searches, rather most normal uses of the API should be fine and not detected as botnets, etc. There's a bit more information on this at the bottom of this page: https://duckduckgo.com/api

However, if you're concerned that you may be detected as such, feel free to get in touch to make sure you don't have problems: bd@duckduckgo.com.
a reply to a comment on the blog post Tell us what you think: Font size settings 1 year and 9 months ago
Thanks for commenting. I just tried increasing the font size in Firefox (44.0) and restarting, and it seems to stick - the font remained at the increased size. Might be worth giving it another try?
